5.0 out of 5 stars A master pianist performs master works
The twelve tracks on the disc comprise single movements of piano concertos and solo piano works, all rendered to perfection by the young and unusually talented pianist.

CD was very good, but unfortunately the CD case was cracked when I opened the package. Perhaps some more bubble wrap to protect it?

This review is from: The Very Best of Lang Lang (Audio CD)
The twelve tracks on the disc comprise single movements of piano concertos and solo piano works, all rendered to perfection by the young and unusually talented pianist.

In the concertos, orchestras and conductors are distinguished: Orcestre de Paris with Christopher Eschenbach, Wiener Philarmoniker with Zubin Mehta, Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre with Valery Gergiev, and Chicago Symphony Orchestra with Daniel Barenboim.

Highlights in the concertos include Beethoven's No.1, Chopin's No.2, Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, and last but not least Tchaikovsky's No.1; solo piano works include well known and beloved small gems polished to perfection by the artist like Chopin's Etude No.3, Satie's Gnossienne No., and Schumann's Traumerei.

An unusually beautiful disc. Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Prodigy, 17 Mar 2014

This review is from: The Very Best of Lang Lang (Audio CD)
Lang Lang is clearly an international super star. Perhaps because of this I have been wary of buying one of his recordings, fearing there would be too much showmanship on display and not enough music. But having bought his disc to give him a go I have to admit I was wrong. The choice of music, the display of musicianship , is equal to his virtuoso talents. He is an amazing talent.

An excellent introductory album to Lang Lang which has now persuaded me to download more of his performances. The service from Amazon was, as usual, exemplary.

Lang Lang is a wonderful pianist. This recording is fine except for the track titles being embeded in Chinese characters.

Everything this artist touches turns to gold. He has a knack of turning the less interesting pieces into the most beautiful sounds.
